2011 Senior Bowl: Mason Foster's Draft Stock Rises With Solid Week

New, 1 comment

It seems like all Washington linebacker Mason Foster does is string together strong practices. It's that consistency, and a week chock full of strong performances at the Senior Bowl, that has Foster's draft stock rising as scouts continue to warm up to him. Foster is one of the players that has benefited the most from the Senior Bowl practices and could see his name called in the first two rounds of the NFL Draft because of it.

National Football Post's Wes Bunting singled out Foster on Wednesday morning, noting he's been garnering plenty of attention in Mobile, Alabama this week. According to Bunting, Foster solidified himself as second- or third-round prospect this week, opening some eyes at the Senior Bowl.

For those that have paid attention to Foster throughout his career at Washington, none of this should come as a surprise. Foster has been a steady presence in the middle of the Washington defense and his tackling numbers show just that. It's nice to see the attention surrounding him begin to pick up ahead of the draft, and the Senior Bowl may be just the beginning for Foster as he showcases his skills in workouts and combine situations.
